VARIOUS OTHERS: FESTIVAL OF EXHIBITIONS

A container to hold something else.

If one thing has become apparent in recent months, it’s that there is an urgency for forms of coexistence and new ideas for being together. VARIOUS OTHERS offers an opportunity for this, in that it’s format does not deny differences but rather establishes a basis, a space in which artistic practices and actors can come together in all their diversity.

The form of an invitation to gallery owners and artists from other cities can also entail, in the best sense, the question of which narratives underlie our own community and at what point the stories a city tells become dense, porous or fragile. Where they are alive enough to exist within them or where they must be destabilized in order to breathe. It is about a format in which listeners and story- tellers enter into dialogue.

The form of this approach reminds me of the essay Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction (1986), in which Ursula Le Guin exercises a feminist critique of the traditional analysis of conventional narration that excludes or marginalizes the complex and complicated. The male hero goes out into the world, kills an animal to bring back to his family, who are waiting for him by the re in the cave—in the conventional imagination, the origin of all narration, which Le Guin reconceives. In her theory, the rst cultural tool is not a weapon at all but a container. A container that allows things to be collected, stored. An object that enables both re ection on a tomorrow and reminiscence of a past because it preserves, passes on, and prepares.

As with VARIOUS OTHERS, storytelling functions by narrating stories about the decentralized moments of a city within a particular window of time, held together by a network of references—similar to the way a vessel works. This moment of narrative withdrawal and the simultaneity and polyphony of different voices and authors open up the political aspect of this collaborative work, which refuses to establish a center or hierarchy.
